" 'Tuesday in the Park' has grown to become one of Western New York's most successful summer series, drawing thousands from our region to this spectacular venue and creating vibrancy in our community," said Elizabeth Gurney, executive director of the First Niagara Foundation. "We are especially pleased to continue our longstanding partnership with Artpark as title sponsor this summer with the incredible lineup of performers and their exciting new branding campaign."
Artpark's fresh look and new tagline are the product of a new collaboration with Buffalo ad agency Crowley Webb. Artpark President George Osborne said, "Artpark has undergone tremendous growth over the past several years, and we felt it was an appropriate time to revisit our branding to reflect the current status of the park in the marketplace. We chose to work with Crowley Webb on this new branding because of their excellent reputation and the spirit and creativity of their team of professionals. We are excited about our collaboration with Crowley Webb and are confident that the new branding will bring our image in line with the success of our programming."
